PWD(1)                  FreeBSD General Commands Manual                 PWD(1)

NAME
     pwd - return working directory name

SYNOPSIS
     pwd

DESCRIPTION
     Pwd writes the absolute pathname of the current working directory to the
     standard output.

     Some shells may provide a builtin pwd command which is similar or
     identical to this utility.  Consult the builtin(1) manual page.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The pwd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

STANDARDS
     The pwd utility is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'')
     compatible.  The -L flag is not supported.

SEE ALSO
     builtin(1), cd(1), csh(1), sh(1), getcwd(3)

BUGS
     In csh(1) the command dirs is always faster because it is built into that
     shell.  However, it can give a different answer in the rare case that the
     current directory or a containing directory was moved after the shell
     descended into it.
